    Board of Director Elections are coming up soon, we Need you!

    Greetings my rotorhead friends.
    Elections are coming up as 3 board members, 3 year terms, will expire at Mentone and one of them sadly is Robert Rymer our treasure is retiring and will be sorely missed.

    Brent Drake our President & myself John Rountree will be running for another 3 years to create new income streams so PRA can make a meaningful difference in our personal rotorcraft community.

    The good news is we have funds available for you and this board to help make a different as we have turned PRA from losing money to over $30K in the black and paid for a new roof on the office/ house, that was about to blow away, and other long over due maintenance. We hope to have doors on all the hangars and the runway repaired by our convention too.

    WHAT WE need is people who will put in TIME not just at board meeting but like Robert hours each month doing the books.

    1. We need a Manufacture & Vendor representative: We will be contacting the Manufactures & Vendors about our new membership type and it's benefits. And later this year helping them run their portal where the public can do an easy search of all manufactures rides looking for single or two place, open or closed cockpit, and tandems or side by side and find exactly what they are looking for in seconds.
    2. Group Insurance Coordinator: Contacting underwriters.
    3. Press Release Manager: Works in conjunction with PRA's business manager and the Manufacture & Vendor representative to batch email press releases.
    4. Donation Coordinator: Contacting the ads of the people selling personal rotorcraft and letting them know they can donate it to PRA as well as copy a link to the ad in For Sale section of our forum. Later this year put invite the seller to put it in our new classified ad page.
    5. Newsletter editor: (We would like to collect from as many chapters as we can news letters and publish them each month)
    6. Volunteer Coordinator: volunteers when we cannot find a volunteer, normally supplies the tools volunteers need to be successful and follows up & report on progress and needs. As phase two of growth requires many more hands on deck.
    7. Web-Programmers: Windows in either C# or basic using MS SQL as the database.
    8. Convention Marketing Director. Starting a year in advance Emailing/ phone calls placing ads, group invitations, press releases to media, etc. Working with the Convention chairperson.

    Ideas we can get from you and the general public but board members who put in time like Robert is what we need.

    For now if you would like to make the commitment let me know. I will post more about the rules and nominating process soon.
